I have been photographing weddings since 1998 when I felt a need to leave my corporate work and fulfill my creative spirit. I started Novel Photography and grew my business and family almost simultaneously. Now, with four daughters and a very supportive husband I am owner of Sona Photography and have over 450 weddings in my portfolio. I grew up with four sisters and had the best childhood memories. Now, having four girls of my own, I get to relive those memories through my daughters’ eyes.
I have a Psychology degree with a minor in Sociology, and I worked as an equities Trader after college. Everything I have done in my life has fulfilled my purpose for that time, Photography being the best part of it all. I learned what love is by watching my parents. I admired the way my father treated my mother with so much respect and love. I had always wanted those qualities in my husband. I met Faisal at UCF and twenty years and four kids later, he still looks at me the same way he did when we first met.
Mona is amazing!!! She sent me over 300+ "highlights" two days after my wedding and they are absolutely gorgeous!!! She was a pleasure to work with and she even helped me put on my Indian outfit! I had a Hindu wedding, Christian wedding, and reception all in one day and she helped me get the timeline down so everything ran smoothly. She and her team captured so many genuine moments of myself, husband, our parents, and our guests. I'm so in love with my pictures and so glad I hired Stephana!!!
Mona is so personable and amazing to work with. Her photography skills are exceptional! She captured all of the perfect moments, at the right time. I'm so thankful for how wonderful the pictures came out! I couldn't have asked for a better photographer to capture every moment for us on our special day!
